May’s Playstation Plus Review Includes Free Trine 2By: Richard Stalker - April 24, 2012
On the official Playstation Blog today they detailed the Playstation Plus releases. This month blows away last months reveal. This months PS Plus offering features Awesomenauts, Trine 2, and Rock of Ages all for free. It also features Beta access to Pixel Junk’s new music offering 4am. It also includes a free copy of one of the greatest games of all time for any system: Castlevania Symphony of the Night.
The wildly successful PS Plus program offers exclusive programs for a fee. For $50 a year you get free games, cloud saving of your games, automatic trophy synching, and automatic game updating. The amount of free games is worth the price, but when you add on all of the other stuff, as a Playstation fan, it is a no brainer.
The program was launched in July of 2010 in what a lot of people suspected was the first part of a Sony program to eventually charge for the use of the Playstation Network. This has not as of yet come to fruition.
This months reveal also includes full game trials for Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Batman Arkham City and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. It also includes free avatars and free themes!
